Redditch is literally a ditch in the centre of England, furthest point from the sea (or so i’m told) and a congregational spot for the sad species known as ‘chavs’. These small unwitting creatures like to hang around the town centre in large groups (these chavs are pack hunters, most only grow to about 4ft tall – safety in numbers) making rude and ignorant comments to just about any other member of the public that doesn’t dress in exactly the same clothes as them.
Favourite hanging points – (actually come to think of it, chav hangings would be quite fun to watch) Mcdonalds, Burger King, JJB, All-sports.. well just about any shop that sells sports gear or fast food. And as the Kingfisher shopping Centre is none smoking there is usually a fair few hanging around outside the exit doors cramming in another fag.
And yes, as you very well suspected the night life is also poor, local pubs consisting of yates or the liten tree, where the chavs go get slapped up! woo!
So if you have no reason to come to Redditch other than to visit – don’t bother unless you want to get spat on, stabbed, abused or just constantly asked for a fag! Otherwise I suppose Redditch isn’t that bad….
